Exhibition : Entangled

Norton Canes Community Library will showcase the work of contemporary artist Natalya Griffin, in a new exhibition running from 11th to 16th of July 2022.

This exhibition of paintings, 3D elements , photographs and Postal stamps exlores a different way of looking at connections, landscape and mycology. Natalya describes her work as “a network of windows into a different reality inspired by local walks and nature beneath our feet”.

Natalya’s interest in Mycology, combined with personal experiences of traveling expressed through a maze-like pattern that resembles Mycelium (the root system of Fungi) and a myriad of paths that one walks through life.

Each step and mark are a link that grows into a network, connecting events, places, encounters, and memories. “To me the process of painting and making is like a maze – or mycelium – it moves in all directions, sometimes reaching a dead end, sometimes finding a new source of energy”. “Inspired by the Kingdom of Fungi, their invisible network of mycelium that entangles the world beneath our feet as well as their fruit – mushrooms I use subject metaphorically, linking it to the connections between all people, places, and time”.

Returning to painting later in life Natalya is studying with Open college of the Arts, BA Painting, and the work is her degree show. The group is an eclectic collection of large-scale canvas paintings, works on paper, sculptural 3D elements, photographs, text, pyrography, and a “Fungi” themed stamp collection. The work is contemporary and personal; by choosing to show her work in a local library she hopes to generate interest in a modern art approaches and alternative ways that painting is perceived.

Her work has been exhibited in London Oxo Tower Art Maze Exhibition earlier this year; few works are currently on show on a Virtual Gallery Flux Summer Show; published in an Edge-Zine Magazine 12th edition “Identity”. She received a Patricia Farrah Award for Painting 2021.
